1:24 pm on 6 March 2012

There's been some positive news for Chelsea football fans with the Brazil midfielder Ramires signing a new five-year deal, that will keep him at the English Premiership club until 2017.

Ramires, who originally signed a four-year deal when he joined from Benfica in August 2010, made his 50th Premier League appearance in the 1-nil defeat at West Bromwich Albion at the weekend.

That defeat proved the last game for manager Andre Villas-Boas who was sacked a day later.

His number two Roberto Di Matteo has been put in charge of fifth-placed Chelsea until the end of the season.
